I was just told that "oracle TCA does not allow a supplier to be created directly for a party of type person". What is the logic behind this? What if I supply services but do not actually have an organization behind me? How would this be handled?
This is correct, and I had the same issue. Oracle confirmed that it is not possible to create a supplier with type person with the exception for employees.
Unfortunately the AP module is not fully integrated with TCA and only creates parties directly in hz_parties and DQM is not being used.
